these american soldiers returning home from wars overseas. this from michigan: >> what's it like right now, just to finally have him in your arms? >> it's amazing, it's awesome. you know, being over there, i just tried not to think about it, because i had a mission to do, so actually being home now, being home, you know, kind of hard to describe. so i'm just really happy. bill: that's the picture of the day, isn't it? look at that. national guard troops in michigan just finishing a seven-month deployment in the war. martha: all right. this is not so great. we've got those bad jobs numbers that came in from august, zero jobs added in the month of august, and add one group in america, black americans, struggling to find work is really a standout in terms of the bad situation here. mike tobin is live on that for us in chicago. hi mike. >> reporter: hi martha. you mentioned the zero job growth and national unemployment figure, but they only get worse among african-americans. if you look at the number of black americans unemployed, that figure is about 17 percent, the unemployment figures are a litt
new video just being released of a shooting inside a walgreen's drugstore. it happened in michigan. the video shows a couple of masked armed robbers coming into the store in benton township, then watch this, they shove a store employee around. one of the other employees, seeing the guy with his hands in the air, jumped into action to defend himself, he pulls out his own gun. one of the robbers then jumps over the counter at the pharmacy, fires a couple of shots, and then drops his own weapon as he runs off. the store employee, je me hoban, was praised at first for his bravey, but then guess what, he gets fired for violating company policy. now hoban is suing, raising the question, do employees have a right to defend themselves in the workplace. daniel swan son is jeremy hoban's attorney. daniel, first of all, this wasn't a case where he saw guys with a gun, they shoal him, right? >> good acchioo good afternoon. he did shoot at them after the gunman pulled the trigger at least three times of his gun. fortunately for reasons we don't know, the gun never went off. but jeremy only resp
, educated at the university of michigan. has written several books, a long list of books. .uest: keeps me busy host: democrat, good morning. caller: i have one question that i keep hearing over and over again from republicans, the tax as corporations pay, if we could just get it down. i would like to know from the man from heritage, the name of a company, just one, that actually pays 35% in taxes after deductions in loop holes. i want an aim of one company. if you cannot give me the name of one company, everything you say is disingenuous. host: put you on the spot here. guest: i think she actually has a good point. if you are -- there are different carve-outs and deductions that get stuck in it the tax code. the actual effective rate is closer to 18%. you are paying the full rate, more or less. it acts as a disincentive to job growth. speaker boehner and president obama said that one of the things they would like to do is motivate the tax rate, the highest in the industrialized world, but eliminate these deductions and credits so that there are fewer barriers for companies. host: we will
time where maybe that paradigm has changed. i just don't know. >> host: shelbitown, michigan is next for lynn on the republican line. >> caller: yes, good morning, gentlemen. i just wanted to throw this out there. i've been thinking about this for quite some time actually. up here in michigan, we've really truly have lost a full decade. we went through eight years of a democratic governor that came in with all kinds of hopes, kind of like this president. with, you know, going to change things and turn things around. and she came in with like a 69% favorable rating. she left with 16%. you just look at detroit, people keep bringing that up and they are absolutely right. it's had 50 years of single party rule and it's just terrible. so if you want to really take a snapshot of what this president is about to do, just take a look at what michigan's at and that's about all i have to say. >> host: any correlation? >> guest: well, it's interesting the second caller who used michigan as kind of -- to suggest the whole country is becoming michigan. >> host: uh-huh. >> guest: there's a correlat

michigan had been in the race. he had been for several months campaigning and spending time criticizing mitt romney. today he announce he will withdrawal his candidacy. he failed to meet criteria for participation in tonight's debate, failed to attract attention and money. the race is now over and he says he will continue to work from congress on his consecutive principles there is speculation not withstanding his criticism of mitt romney ultimately that is where his support may rest. bret? >> bret: all right, carl. by the way, happy birthday. we will celebrate with a big debate tonight. how about that? >> reporter: thanks, bret. i appreciate it. >> bret: president obama resumes his push for his new stimulus plan today. appearing in cincinnati, ohio. senior white house foreign affairs correspondent wendell goler reports the president's back-to-work agenda involved working over some republican leaders. >> reporter: the president took the campaign for american jobs act to aging bridge that connects the home state of the republican leaders of the house and senate. he called them out by nam

is a 42-year-old attorney who primarily handles business litigation in ohio and michigan and also practices family law and is known to handle messy divorce cases. investigators are trying to determine if the victims were targeted or if the attack was random. >> hard to believe this wasn't targeted. >> right. police in fact at this point are really looking into some of his clients to see what could have led to something so horrific as this. i found it particularly interesting when the father called 911 he was very calm. >> calm, yeah. >> i don't think if i would have been able to do that, my children and me in the car. good for him. he was clear, able to express himself. >> said he handled messy divorce cases. a clue as to who would have motivation to do something. we'll see what dichlevelops. a florida marlin pitcher has been going by an assume name, on the roster as leo nunez, a closer, 36 saves. nunez isn't his real name. he is actually a year older than listed in the marlins guide. he is back in the dominican republic and not expected back this season. strange story. there are
this for quite some time, actually. up here in michigan, we truly have lost a full decade. we went through eight years of a democratic governor they came in with all kinds of hopes, kind of like this president. he was going to change things in turn things around, and she came in with a 69% favorable rating. she left with 16%. you just look at detroit. people keep bringing that up and they're absolutely right. it had 50 years of single-party rule and is just terrible. if you want to take a snapshot of what this president is about to do, just take a look at what michigan is at. that's about all i have to say. host: correlation? guest: the second caller is suggested that the whole country is becoming michigan. they are really struggling just economic trends that are arguably better. certainly michigan, and obama's hands in many ways are tied. the biggest determinant will be an economy over which he has very little control. host: from your, and john on hard democrats line. caller: the woman, the 61-year- old lady, who said she thinks this would be the first time that she would not go out and vote. i
there are all these strings attached. host: michigan. joel is an educator. what kind are you? caller: school board member . kudos to the gentleman before who talked about how our students learn. i would like the administration to take a look at the expert on education and what it takes to educate our students. second of all, we keep looking at federal money in this new proposal to help fund schools. the problem with federal money is, for example, title 1, the food and nutrition bill had never been fully funded. school districts subsidize to make up for the money the federal government is not sending to the school districts. if the federal government met their obligation and fully funded programs, the districts would have plenty of money left over to hire and keep teachers on instead of every year taking money out of our budget to subsidize the subsidies that the federal government isn't sending us. it is time to fully fund these programs, ida, title 1, food and nutrition, etc. 3, it is time for the administration and congress to meet with school board members. every year we go to washington,
of denver, and the university of michigan. he has a long list of books. the next call is from mary ann, a democrat from virginia. caller: i keep hearing over and over again from the republicans that the rich pay 35% in taxes. i would like to know from the man from heritage the name of just one company that actually pays 35% in taxes after deductions and loopholes. if you cannot give me the name of one company, everything you say is disingenuous. guest: she has a good point. the statutory rate is 35%. it is about 4% more than local rates. with the company, you have lobbyists and different directions. the effective rate is closer to 18%. if you are a new company, you have not had the time to lobby the codes for ethanol tax credits or whatever it is. you are paying the full rate as a new company starting up. that is a disincentive for job growth. speaker boehner and president obama have said they would like to lower the tax rate. it is now the highest in the industrialized world. they would like to eliminate a lot of the deductions and credits so there is more incentive for these companie
screen. >> this one from new era michigan on our republicans line. caller: basically the reason we have the tax system we have today is because of the supreme court has never accepted a nonburdensome tax. i was hoping to install a seven-year tax strike so one year everybody would not have to pay federal tax one year. that means everyone that works will get one-seventh of what they paid in fica, then the system could raise the tax as high as they want or low as they can by the politician people's vote. they would be able to afford something, and the people would be able to get a rebait from whatever they think they can expense. and hopefully for a gold standard for the united states, hopefully get it down to 99 cents a gallon again. and we can have gas wars again. host: here's a little more from speaker boehner's speech yesterday. caller: tax increases i think are off the table. i don't think they are viable. it is a simple eindication. tax increases destroy jobs. the mission is it to reduce the deficit, threatening jobs creation in our country. we should not make this task harder by ask
exciting, chrysler just announced they're going to build the maserati right here in detroit michigan for skport around the world. the ford explorer is going to be exported around the world. the chevy volt, both those chevy volts can be sold in europe. we're making vehicles for export. >> how wrong were the republicans who opposed it. >> well, it was crazy. it's just -- they don't care about american workers. they don't care about the middle class, they just want to get more tax breaks to the wealthiest corporations. president obama and the democrats against all the polls, they stood up to the american worker. they stood up to the american companies and look at the succe success. they were right. let's stay with them. let's support them and do right for america. creating more jobs for america. >> you're in negotiation right now for a new contract. will your union be with you if you make a deal with the big three? >> you know, they're complicated issues. there are always major hurdles in negotiations. we've worked through much tougher issues, much tougher times with these companies. we
center in michigan told the employees and now more sectors in the health care industry are forcing both adults and children to be vaccinated and now we is a discussion of whether that is trampling our individual rights. we are joined by dr. nancy snyderman and our own medical journalist. you are a supporter of vaccines, aren't you, nancy snyderman? >> yes. the companies want you to be healthy and when you want the bottom line to be profitable, and if you don't show up, it is critical. if you are a doctor or nurse, you have a moral responsibility not to add to someone's disease burden and if you decide not to be vaccinated and you put a patient in harm's way that is an egregious moral fault. >>> jamie, an influenza vaccination has been recommended, but from a league al stanpoint s there something wrong with imposing a rule on employees? >> well, we are a country in which a individual has a right to his or her body, and the constitution recognizes that right. the 4th amendment right of being free of unreasonable searches and seizures and our right to privacy, but all of that goes to the r
. one message to reporters was titled michigan governor rick snyder backs american jobs act. surprising endorsement from conservative republican. less than an hour later they sent corrected release, saying rick snyder on american jobs act. walking back the claim that snyder backed the obama plan. while the governor has positive things to say about the proposal, his office clarified he isn't offering his full support. one element of the plan is preventing 285,000 teacher layoffs. however, senate republican leader mitch mcconnell's office points out last year president obama signed legislation that included $10 billion to avoid 160,000 teacher layoffs. that bill was a bargain averaging $62,500 per job saved. at least compared to the president's new request which works out to $125,000 per job. the education department says last year's bill did save jobs but there is now a need to avoid more layoffs. and finally, former yahoo ceo carol bartz may have cost herself tens of billions of dollars because of name-calling. she referred to other board members as dufuses two days after she was fired
won a michigan straw poll this weekend. he won ohio in july. in new hampshire he won in january. mr. santorum won his home state of pennsylvania, as well as south carolina. michele bachmann won ames, iowa. if straw polls meant winning that state, if he meant electoral college votes, these would be the standings. among the republican presidential contenders right now. maybe that's the way it is. maybe that's exactly how the republican nomination contest is going to play out. ron paul and herman cain duking it out down to the wire. if you believe that, keep using up all that shoe leather and pixels and all that breath covering republican party fund-raisers. i mean, straw polls. because of their great predictive value and all the important information they give us the presidential race. or, we could all agree to treat these things as what we all know they are. cooked-up publicity stunts to get media attention and use it as leverage to force the candidates to pander to the most manipulative and cynical activists in the political system. oh, and to raise money for republican parties and
vacation in michigan and we were getting 36 miles a gallon. i felt pretty good about it. i was bragging to my friends about it. now i'm bragging on the senate floor. it can be done. we can create more fuel-efficient vehicles. we didn't compromise anything, and we bought america. i think that's what we need to encourage in this country. cars and creating jobs in this country, reducing the need for energy from being imported from overseas and reducing the pollution that unfortunately hinders our environment and our health. i think that's a good thing. so on the senator's first point, sure, more energy at home but put it in perspective. that isn't the answer to america's economic needs. the second point he says is eliminate certain regulations. that that could be true. there are regulations now that don't make any sefnlts get rid of them. i'm not sure this is a big ball and chain being dragged around by our economy, but there's no sense in wasting time or money on regulations that really don't serve a good public purpose mp the final point he said, i couldn't agree more -- tax reform. we l
something. i will tell you, if the president of the united states is going to deliver a speech in michigan saying civility is important and this is, bla, bla, bla. i know it's 80 after the hour, but we are going to say it. the president has the responsibility to treat both sides the same. listen to jay carney yesterday saying what? >> jay took it seriously. yes. this was the official -- >> nothing to say. >> i understand that there is a ritual in washington that you know, somebody says something and you link the associations and everyone with an association with him or her has to avow. mr. hoffa speaks for himself. he speaks for the labor movement. the president speaks for himself. i speak for the president. >> interesting this is the same white house that rush limbaugh stands for what he saids. glenn beck for what he said. fox news for what they said. jim cramer and "mad money" for what they have said. they have used that pulpit to go after people when they say irresponsible things. >> his choice of words is bad. i don't know what's wrong with saying that. it makes more of an issue. hold
